‘INSPIRING LEARNING’

 

Food & Textiles Regional Events


The Food Teachers Centre and Textiles Skills Academy have joined forces to hold joint regional events with a very exciting mix of speakers and workshops.  


With the success of the joint food & textiles June 2016 event we have decided to take it on the road. We are bringing a few of top features of this training day to take around the country throughout 2016-17. 

 

 Food Teachers Centre event Textiles Skills Academy Event Inspiring Learning workshop event

 

 


 

The day is divided in to three workshop sessions which you can attend all of:  

 

1. Plan for the Future: Food and Textiles teaching.
Presenters: Louise T Davies (Founder, Food Teachers Centre) and Dawn Foxall (Founder, Textiles Skills Academy) 

New D&T and Food GCSEs and Progress 8!  Never have food and textiles teachers faced such an array of new challenges and opportunities!  How will you know you are getting it right in your school?  We find ourselves sitting in the third bucket, competing with every other creative and vocational option. With a decline in numbers and funding for D&T we need to understand the wider scene and prove that our lessons are relevant, vibrant, and essential for EVERY child. This presentation equips you with ideas to secure a better future for your subject at school, by linking in the key government drivers and skills that future employers value. 

 

2. Inspiring Textiles in the Classroom:
Presenter  Nicky Simspon (Hillview School)

Improve your practical skills including both hand and machine sewing for Key stage 4 and 5; including smocking, shadow folds, heat press innovation and computer aided design. Begin a construction sample resource to use in your classroom to create exciting and innovative products. Ideas for excellent products, lesson activities, schemes of work that lead to improved coursework/exam performance. Plenty of inspirational examples and resources to photograph.

ABOUT THE FOOD TEACHERS CENTRE:

Food Teachers Centre Logo

FOOD TEACHER CENTRE is a UK based self-help group founded by Louise T Davies in 2013 and supported by experienced associates. It provides a platform to exchange best practice, give advice and support to less experienced teachers, answering practical concerns and keeping them abreast of the latest curriculum changes. A one-stop shop for like-minded professionals who seek help and information. It is free to take part and is facilitated through a closed on-line group, safeguarding the conversations of the teaching staff.

The idea of a 'Teacher's Centre' is a response to the lack of local and national specialist support and diminishing Continuing Professional Development with the demise of local authority advisers ASTs, lead practitioners and supporting organisations.
